NEWPORT BEACH, Calif., May 15, 2014 – SoulCycle, the country’s premier full-body indoor cycling workout, opens its first ever Orange County location at Fashion Island this fall.
SoulCycle has signed a lease for a 3,363 square-foot space that will feature a bike studio which will be home to the signature SoulCycle workout. SoulCycle Fashion Island will also include a SOUL retail boutique, with its own active and loungewear collections. Classes will be offered daily starting at 5:30 a.m.
“We’re excited to be able to bring O.C.’s very first SoulCycle to Fashion Island,” said Stacie Ellis, senior director of marketing for Irvine Company Retail Properties. “With our many fitness-related retailers at the shopping center and knowing that coastal Orange County residents are very health and fitness-conscious, we believe SoulCycle will be a great addition to Fashion Island.”
Co-founded by Elizabeth Cutler and Julie Rice, SoulCycle opened its first location in New York City in 2006. By combining inspirational coaching along with great music and a full-body workout on a bike, SoulCycle immediately reinvented indoor-studio cycling and simultaneously innovated boutique cardio fitness in the marketplace. Today, over 8,000 riders take SoulCycle classes everyday to release stress, burn fat, tone muscle, and change their bodies and lives.
Offering a variety of classes for cyclists of all levels, SoulCycle’s pricing, schedules, and the SOUL BLOG, can be found online at www.soul-cycle.com.
In 2006, SoulCycle introduced the innovative model of boutique cardio fitness to the marketplace and reinvented indoor studio cycling. Since 2006, riders have been flocking to SoulCycle to release stress, burn fat, tone muscle, improve aerobic endurance and change their bodies, fast. SoulCycle combines a mental component of inspirational coaching, with great music and a full-body workout on the bike. Not only do Riders burn calories, get an intense 45-minute cardio workout, but using the SoulCycle® Method, they simultaneously tone their upper bodies using hand weights and do core exercises.
The SoulCycle experience is a high energy, results-oriented, community based workout. Each rider feels important and connected to the brand as a result of the well-trained staff and personal customer attention. The exercise program focuses on the “energy of the pack” and creates a strong community bond between the riders. The rhythm-based rides hosted in candlelit studios make riders feel like they are partying in a healthy nightclub. And the one-of-a-kind playlists set the tone for an exciting new experience every ride.
